One more moment please.
Here is the statute:
8.01-220. Action for alienation of affection, breach of promise, criminalconversation and seduction abolished.
A. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, no civilaction shall lie or be maintained in this Commonwealth for alienation ofaffection, breach of promise to marry, or criminal conversation upon which acause of action arose or occurred on or after June 28, 1968.
B. No civil action for seduction shall lie or be maintained where the causeof action arose or accrued on or after July 1, 1974.
So there is no basis for requesting a return of a ring bsed on a breach of promise to marry. A gift is a gift, and the legislature has determined there is no recourse for that.
